Portland family needs a part-time babysitter. Must love kids! We would prefer a more mature candidate who will get 2 (5&7yo) kids on the bus in the morning and can transport (usually just) one almost 3yo child to preschool as needed. Ideal candidate is energetic and loves to be active outdoors, enjoys crafts and lots of reading. We'll need some laundry help now and again as the youngest is newly potty-trained. MUST live within 30mins of our home in Portland (near Glastonbury), and MUST be willing to care for sick kids, no exceptions. Work schedule will vary weekly but usual hours will be 6 a.m. -5 p.m. 1-2x/week, specifically looking for availability on Mon, Thurs, and Fridays. Kids are pretty awesome, if we say so ourselves, but yeah, they're great. Potential to transition to more hours when our usual sitter moves out of state.
